At the moment all the swims hold plenty of fish, you just have to feed to turn them on. It can pay to have three swims on the go,
resting each after a fish is caught – the two side margins and one spot in open water directly in front of you.
A – Car park and easy walk swims get well fed in the summer and are productive.
B – Pegs 10, 19, 22 and 23. In winter try either pole with pellets at 12 metres, or bomb and pellets. The deepest pegs are 19-23, where it's typically 6-7 ft deep.
C – Pegs 43-55 are pretty reliable choices all year round. Point swims such as peg 54 can be good, like the other point pegs.
Casting towards the island can be productive, summer and winter.
£7 per person for two rods. No night fishing, barbless hooks only (maximum size 10), no braided hook lengths. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
